Gschwendt Castle offers a special look back in time where history has left its mark for visitors to explore.
In the tiny hamlet of Gries you´ll find the once mighty Gschwendt Castle. The moat, the ponds as well as the bailey have been removed over the centuries. However, the remains of the bailey give most a good impression of how the Castle must have looked back in time. As for the rest of the ring wall, it is more difficult, as there are mainly just stumps of the rotunda towers, that once flanked the gateway, and of the square central tower left over.
The massive tower house dominates the bailey. The gate to the castle is a quadrangle tower house that was an impressive defensive structure in its hey days.
The terrain surrounding the Castle has been filled up with debris and is enclosed by a wire fence.
